Day 2

The isle of Arran is a magical island, full of wildlife, mountains, beautiful beaches, castles and whisky.

When creating this private tour we will explore the options that best fit your group. You could explore the mountainous north of the island and maybe Lochranza Castle with a chance to enjoy a dram at the Arran Distillery. 

Tobermory is the biggest town on the island of Mull and has the most attractive, colourful painted houses overlooking the pretty harbour. There is a number of great traditional pale houses dotted along the harbour road coupled with a choice of seafood cafes.

Mull also boasts an amazing castle, Duart, this could be an option to add to your itinerary.  

Arran is also has many stone circles dating from the early Bronze age. You can visit Machrie Moor and its six stone circles, enjoying the incredible atmosphere that can only be found at these Neolithic cites.

No tour to the island would be complete without a visit to the Arran Cheese Shop, a family-owned business that’s now famous all over the world.

The next morning, we head back on the ferry to the main land form Lochranza and Claonaig. This ferry journey takes us onto the Kintyre Peninsula.
